PORT NECHES – Port Neches-Groves Superintendent Dr. Rodney Cavness on Thursday slammed the Obama administration’s expected letter which is set to tell districts to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms of their choosing.

The letter, first reported by the New York Times, will reportedly be delivered to every public school in the country — including those in Southeast Texas.

The letter reportedly will warn school and district leaders if they do not allow transgender students to use the bathroom for whichever gender they identify, the schools may run the risk of lawsuits or lose funding.

The Times reported the letter would not have the force of law, but it would be signed by officials with the Department of Justice and the Department of Education.

Dr. Cavness did not mince words in this post to social media:



When asked if there was fear about molestation of children at the core of the superintendent’s concerns, Cavness said he did not feel that way.

“I would say about molesters — 99.9% (in the bathroom) certainly aren’t.”

Meanwhile, the White House said it would not withhold funds during the HB2 battle in North Carolina.  The Justice Department and North Carolina’s governor sued each other on Monday.

Also on Thursday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced his support for North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, saying the two had been talking about how best to battle the U.S. Justice Department.

President Barack Obama has said he believes the law is “wrong and should be overturned.”
